I host the Supernova: Commencements series where we interview thought leaders from across industry and give students (and young professionals) LIVE access to ask their questions on career, life, school, whatever!

Today I spoke with John Yates. John is a Partner at Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP and an expert across the country on startups, technology, and investors.

We talked about how he started in tech law over 35 years ago (super interesting!), what makes a tech company successful, shifts in the industry and trends he is seeing, venture capital and diversity, and, obviously, he had great advice for budding lawyers!

In our new Your Career Powered By Data segment (by our partner Steppingblocks):
The most common education background for law is a Bachelors Degree in Law (seems logical), but check out the segment to find out some really interesting details about being a lawyer.

Check out their robust system to help you make some career decisions based on big data. You can link to them from our website and start using the system for free.
